Science vs. Religion is such an awkward topic to talk about because some people will never see the other side, some people are set in their ways and some people are just straight crazy. I googled Science vs. Religion and millions of articles popped up talking about this topic. One came up which I thought was really interesting. This is the first quote that caught my attention. “The Ancient Greek philosophers were one of the first groups to look at religion and science together. Most believed that there was no distinction between science and theology. Great thinkers, such as Aristotle, believed that science was a process of trying to understand the natural laws behind creation. It was their view that creation was mathematically perfect, and that logic and reasoning could discern the mind of the gods.” I thought this was very interesting and it makes sense that science was trying to understand the natural laws behind creation. I disagree with them thinking that creation was mathematically perfect. Nothing is really perfect and some things were created that are not perfect. At the very end of this article there is a quote:
“Religion without science is superstition and science without religion is materialism.”
I would like to know how people feel about this quote. It made me think for a second. I feel like I can not comment on this quote because I am not that religious and do not know much about religions. For someone who is I would be curious if you like this quote or not. This quote is from `Abdu’l-Bahá, son of the founder of the Baha’i faith. Overall I do not have much knowledge to comment on this topic and as I searched more I was even more confused on what to believe.
